Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 25.302 billion Vyos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vyolyncian economy, worth a remarkable 6,087 trillion souls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 240,580 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All forms of advertising are banned, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, graffiti graces every city's streets, and the government is engaging in an agricultural trade war with Maxtopia. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vyolynce is ranked 2nd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 121,993rd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -322 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
